Food Book Club with Craig & Shaun McAnuff18th September
We are delighted to be bringing the taste of the Caribbean to Essex and welcome Craig & Shaun McAnuff authors of Original Flava to our Food Book Club.
Craig and Shaun, two brothers from South London, were taught to cook by their Mum & Grandma. Original Flava is all about meals that are vibrant, lively, exciting and full of the influences from different cultures that make the Caribbean island of Jamaica so wonderful.
Their motto is EAT: they make their recipes Easy, Accessible and Tasty. Giving you platefuls that taste like grandma’s food so there are recipes for classics like Ackee ‘n’ Saltfish and Curry goat, and Caribbean favourites from home such as Garlic butter lobster and Trini doubles. “We also like to twist it up a little to give dishes our modern spin, so you can find recipes for Honey roasted jerk-spiced salmon, Plantain bean burgers and Banana fritter cheesecake.”
